Uploading a revised or updated file is fast and simple. The entire revised file needs to be uploaded through your account. We cannot accept files through drop box or other delivery methods. Click on the title of your book; this takes you to your Title Details page. On the top right-hand side of the page you will see a button “Upload New File”. A revised file cannot be submitted until the "Upload New File" button is there. Click this button and then upload your revised file (be sure to also press the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page and pay the $25.00 revision fee to ensure we receive your file for processing). The turn-around-time for interior file review is usually 1 business day, and covers usually process in 1-2 business days.
If you submit a file with the updated pages or corrected area, your title’s page count and/or printing will be incorrect. We print what you provide and your book will not print correctly if the entire file is not uploaded.
When uploading a revised file, only upload the file that needs to be replaced. For example, if you updated the cover file, only the revised cover file should be uploaded. If you revise both the cover and interior files, you will upload the revised file for each. We charge a revision fee for each file that is uploaded.
Also, if your page count increases or decreases by more than four pages, a new cover file may need to be uploaded. This is because your spine width may change due to the page count alteration. The best way to determine if you need a new cover file is by using our Weight and Spine Width Calculator.
You may use this helpful tool to compare your spine width before and after the page count change. If the spine width changes, an updated cover file is needed.
After your files have been uploaded and processed, you will have an eProof to review and approve (if it looks correct to you) through your account. You will also receive an email with a link to the eProof. Approving the eProof allows your book to be placed in production so it can be printed and distributed, if you click the "enable distribution" button.
There is a $25.00 file revision fee per file. You will not be charged for uploading a revised file if your title has never been in production. If your title has not been in production and you reject the eProof, you will not be charged a revision fee when you upload another revised file. If your title is on waitspecs (in the "Waiting for Customer Specifications" status) and you upload a revised file, you will not be charged a revision fee.
